You would need to establish some Italian connection involved in the naming of FIca Gal and I don't know how you would do that.
However I still think this horse should have a name change now that this Italian slang word is identified as being so crude by the authorities in the name of consistency

You’re a sick individual if you find that clever or amusing.

The name is just lewd and disgusting. Its great to see authorities ban the owner who named the horse. He’s someone our sport can do without.

I was referring to Andiamo Fica. 

Honestly, how can an owner cop an 18 month ban for an ""offensive name" but a trainer can stuff it's horse full of any number of illegal substance and cop, a few thousand dollar fine, and maybe six months if they're really really bad. What's more offensive?

Why did the stewards allow it in the first place?
They initially accepted it did they not?

Probably they were misled with the meaning because it is Italian Slang.

Since part of the name comes from the sire they would of accepted some association.

Interesting to note that in certain sports like soccer for instance we a have a situation where the governing body, FIFA constantly is fining Mexico because their fans chant similar slang when the opposition goalkeeper is taking a goalkick.

Can't eradicate it...
